Our beds at Victoria Hall were so comfy until we overslept! Seeing that everything in Melbourne CBD are fairly near we decide to walk again. Our first destination for day 2 is Queen Victoria Market. But first we made a small detour to Franklin Street to check out something for our coming trip. Will let you know when it’s time.
This market is divided into several precincts; open-air fruits & vegetables stalls, deli hall, meat hall, organics, food court, wine market, general merchandise & street shops.
Come now, let me take you to a little tour.
Next is the Meat Hall. As we all know market place usually is wet and smelly. Nope not here. If I were to blindfold you, you wouldn’t know you’ve step inside the meat hall. Haha
We check out the general merchandise area a little and decide we will come back again a day before we go back. We need more time to shop! Haha
Went back to the hostel and had 2 hour of blissful nap. Hehe
We visited several more shops along Lonsdale Street and Bourke Street. Then we could walk no more.
While dragging our tired legs back to our hostel, we decided to have dinner at Seoul Tookbegi Korean Restaurant @ Russell Street. Do click at the link to read what we had there.
After dinner we went back to the hostel. Later on we went out again. This time to Woolworths & Big W at QV Centre. They are supermarket & discount departmental store respectively.
These are self-checkout lane at Woolsworth. I was acting ‘so ulu’ that when we visited another supermarket, Coles few days later my sister told me not to bring out my camera. Having seen and used this self-checkout system in US, my sister asked me “Have you seen anyone taking pictures at Tesco and Giant or not?” I said no lo. That was when I realized how “monkey” I was. But then can’t blame me ma. Malaysia don’t have ma. Hahaha
Anyway the self-checkout system need occasion card-swiping by several stand-by operators. I’m not sure why. We kept pressing ‘Need assistance’. LOL At first it was because I didn’t know how to operate it and because we’re not sure where the changed slot is (LOL) but then later very mysteriously the operator will pop up beside us and swipe a card.
Ended the night by watching a French movie in my comfy hostel bed.
So that’s day 2. Stay tuned for day 3 ya. 😉
